When it comes to growing a team within a business or organisation, on-boarding is key. Many businesses don’t realise the importance of on-boarding till they start to scale up. In fact 22% of companies have no formal on-boarding process in place at all according to Harvard Business Review
Technology has to become a key tool within the onboarding process to help businesses large and small streamline this process. Without processes in place many businesses can find themselves wasting time and money.
What is On-boarding?
On-boarding is essentially the process of integrating new employees or new hires into a business. On-boarding is not just a one-off event or induction day, it actually should last much longer. At CoBabble we strongly believe when it comes to on-boarding, it’s essential to start before the employees first day and with new developments in technology there are now smart ways to do this.
Having an effective onboarding process in place allows new hires to get comfortable and familiar with the company or business before they step into the office.
